World History Honors

            This is an honors level survey course of modern world geography, history, and culture.  Students are expected to demonstrate knowledge of basic chronology and major events and themes from the Middle Ages to the Present.  The goals of the class are to help students (a) develop a more sophisticated understanding of primary sources, (b) improve reading comprehension, and (c) appropriately and effectively categorize, generalize, evaluate, and synthesize information.  The content of the course follows the Pre-AP Initiative of the College Entrance Examination Board.      

            This course is designed to assist students in understanding how people and countries of the world have become increasingly interconnected.  In the last 600 years population growth, demand for resources, curiosity, and technology have converged to draw the distant corners of the world closer together.  Critical thinking is highly important to this course which emphasizes on why and how people, ideas, and technology have made an impact on diverse groups of people.
